Back in April my husband and I were in London for a few days. During our time here we took the train down to Chichester in Sussex for an overnight stay and for a meet up with my very dear friend (and blog reader) Fran and her husband Steve. While we were there vi payed a visit to Chichester cathedral, and there we came over a very interesting installation with 1000 tear bottles. I blogged about it, you can read the blog here. Some time after we came home, the artist of the bottles, Deborah Tompsett, found my blog and contacted me, and since then we have sent a few emails back and forth between us.
When Deborah learned that I was coming back to London again, and even south to Sussex to visit Fran, she invited both of us to come to her garden, and her studio.
And today was the day we entered a tiny little paradice garden and workshop south in England. We had planned to stay for a short while, we ended up being there for hours. We had so much to talk about, so much to share, and in the middle of all three of us chatting along, Fran and Deborah suddenly dircovered they had been in school together, same year, though not same classes.
Deborah is a very talented artist, and has some very exciting projects coming up. I am sure I will be able to tell you more about them later.......
.....for the moment I want you to cross your fingers that I manage to help Deborah to get her artwork to be displayed in Norway, somehow!
